Posted 2 months ago

Position Title:Senior Clinical Trial Associate, Clinical Operations

Reports to: Senior Director, Clinical Operations

Status: Regular, Full-Time, Exempt

Location: San Francisco, CA

Assembly Biosciences (NASDAQ symbol ASMB) is a clinical-stage biotechnology company advancing two innovative platform programs: a Hepatitis B-Cure program consisting of a new class of oral therapeutic candidates for the treatment of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and a novel class of oral synthetic live biotherapeutic candidates, which are designed to treat disorders associated with the Microbiome.

The HBV pipeline consists of a lead program in multiple global Phase 2a studies; a 2ndGeneration program entering Phase I late this year, and a 3rdprogram approaching clinical candidate selection. We expect this pipeline to represent a backbone therapy for increasing cures in HBV, and can be envisioned as a foundation of the company's research in virology globally.

The Microbiome platform consists of our lead programs in GI, partnered with Allergan, nearing the first IND/Phase Ib later this year and early next for Ulcerative Colitis, and a pipeline of other disease areas in consideration for advancement that are wholly owned by Assembly Biosciences.

The Company plans to move to the Oyster Point Area in South San Francisco by the end of 2018. As Assembly nears 100 employees, of which ~60 are based in San Francisco, it is anticipated that future growth will be focused at our new South San Francisco Location. The Company has a strong balance sheet having recently raised $166 million, bringing its cash reserves to approximately $250 million and thus positioned well to build the next phase of Assembly toward global development and commercialization of our innovative medicines in HBV-cure and the Microbiome.
